One Man Will Live as Someone Else Using Virtual Reality…24 Hours a Day For 28 Straight Days

Performance artist Mark Farid is crowdfunding in an attempt to finance an experiment in which he will “live as someone else” — i.e., experience life through their eyes by way of a virtual reality headset — for 28 straight days:

The motivation behind the project is a “social-artistic” experiment called Seeing-I. Farid’s Kickstarter description details the nuts and bolts:

For 24 hours a day for 28 days, artist Mark Farid will wear a Virtual Reality Headset through which he will experience life through another person’s eyes and ears – this person will be referred to as ‘the Other’. Mark has had no previous relationship with this person; he is only aware that the Other is a heterosexual male, who is in a relationship. The Other is required to wear a pair of glasses that covertly capture audio and video. This footage will then be watched back by Mark, who will inhabiting a space consisting of only a bed, a toilet and shower area. This area, as well as Mark will be on constant display to the audience.
